The Urban Land Institute's (ULI) Terwilliger Center selected EYA's Capitol Quarter New Townhome Community in Washington, DC for recognition in their annual Jack Kemp Models of Excellence Workforce Housing Award.
The award is designed to honor neighborhoods which bring homeownership opportunities to people earning between 60-120% of the Area's Median Income (AMI). Further, the homes are close to employment centers and transportation hubs - which reduces the amount of time homeowners spend in their cars, lessening the impact on the nation's roadways and the environment.
Capitol Quarter combines market-rate townhomes with workforce homes and affordable rental homes, all designed to blend seamlessly with each other and the surrounding historic homes of Capitol Hill in Washington, DC. Situated just steps from two Metro stations, the downtown business district and the booming new Capitol Riverfront entertainment district, Capitol Quarter offers life within walking distance® to everything homeowners want and need.
Homebuilder EYA has won more than 200 awards for its 30+ urban infill communities built in the Washington Metropolitan Area since 1992. To learn more, visit www.eya.com.
